Abstract:
In critical real-time computer systems, whether aircraft, automotive and industrial products it is very common the use of a fixed priority scheduler. The fixed priority scheduler has shown a good performance in control applications even in different applications where it was adopted. But nowadays, to go forward with the technology, be it in hardware and software, schedulers with dynamic priority can be a better alternative in certain situations. The present work aims to show that a variable priority scheduler can improve the performance of a control system obtained with a fixed priority scheduler, even when it was bad conditioned. This study is based on a four motor position control system. For this, the study will make use of a specialized simulation tool. In the future, we intend to extend this study to schedulers that use random and sporadic tasks.
